Kid & Pet Friendly Home Decor

Is it possible to have a stylish home with young children and pets living there? We say yes! Here are a few of our best tips when designing a space with little (or furry) ones in mind.

There are so many great outdoor fabric options now, and these also work well indoors. These fabrics resist moisture and most stains. Other stain resistant fabrics like denim and canvas work well, too.

A great place to use the outdoor fabric is in the kitchen…on barstools, benches or banquettes.  Indoor/Outdoor fabrics have improved dramatically, with a softer feel and great looking textures.

The Pineapple Girls love slipcovers, they are so easy to throw in the washing machine! Don’t be afraid to use a light color, even white! You can bleach them.

Durable flooring is important for homes with kids and dogs.  Some ceramic tile has the look of hardwood, but is maintenance free, and a great choice.  Add an indoor/outdoor area rug to get the style your looking for, and they are super easy to clean!

Try to avoid hard edges on the tables. We love round dining tables!  Better for fun conversation at family dinners.

Finally, choose a washable good quality paint to easily remove scuffs and little hand prints.

 

 

 

 

 

Wedding Gift Round-Up

It’s wedding season! A wedding is such a happy event, but finding a truly special gift for the newlyweds can be challenging.  Below are some Pineapple Girls favorites.

Coordinates Glasses

Your gift should be as special as their love! Give a gift they will forever cherish. Our unique Coordinate Stemless Wines, On the Rocks, or Beer Pilsners can be customized with the exact coordinates of where he proposed, where they got married, or the special destination they choose for their honeymoon. They also make the perfect gift for the bridal party, or wedding favor for all the guests to remember their special day.

Express Yourself Pillows

Such a sweet addition to a newlywed’s home, these flour sack pillows with down inserts are sure to delight. Perfect on the bed, sofa or a chair.

Michael Aram Heart Frame (8×10)

The Heart Collection, by Michael Aram, takes its inspiration from the imagery that floats around classic storytelling. “These heart vessels are all unique as they are hand forged and cut. There is an individuality to each piece, just as our hearts and expressions of love are different from person to person, from moment to moment. I love the idea of honoring our history with someone as much as our present and our futures. There is beauty in paying homage not only to what came before at the same time as dreaming of what lies ahead, while capturing the celebratory moment you are in. They represent Then, Now, and Forever!”

Brahms  Mount Throw

Something blue and perfect! A true classic, with a twist, from Brahms Mount. Their iconic cotton throw features a large-scale herringbone pattern finished with a flourish of hand-twisted and knotted rope fringe and their iconic selvedge (a beautiful byproduct of the antique loom it’s woven on). Dense, luxurious, plush and practical.

Tour Our Store

We thought it would be fun to take our online followers on a tour of our storefront in Jupiter, Florida.  Its a pretty special place. Our beautifully curated collection of modern coastal furniture and home accessories features a fresh style using natural, organic materials and fabrics.   Our ever changing showroom reflects our current, yet timeless collections available in home furnishings today.

Many of the items in the video and photos are also available in our online store.

Blue, White and Gold

Blue and white will always be classic yet current, and it’s one of the Pineapple Girl’s favorite color combos.   It’s perfect for an ocean inspired room.  In the photo below, the touches of gold add a modern vibe and keep the look current.  A little bling is never a bad thing, right?

blog post.jpgUsing the white slipcovered sofas and white shiplap walls as our canvas, we added complimentary blues in a variety of patterns and textures.  The pops of gold really make the room! The key is to add just enough gold to make a statement…don’t go overboard.

Modern Coastal Easter Decor

Easter is right around the corner!  The Pineapple Girls love using modern coastal elements to add a fun and interesting twist to the traditional ways of decorating and displaying Easter eggs.

We were looking for ways to style a coffee table for an upcoming Easter gathering and decided to use these new white rope lanterns that just came in to the store. We love the coastal look of these lanterns, which can be used to hold candles…or even Easter Eggs!

Here is a quick and easy tutorial for how to use the lanterns to create a stylish coffee table for Easter:

Happy Easter from The Pineapple Girls!

How To Create Extra Seating In Your Home

When planning the look of your space, remember that stylish decor elements in your home can also be functional. We love stools and ottomans tucked away for extra seating when guests come over.  In the photo below, a pair of ottomans opposite the coffee table adds a bit of fun, while maintaining casual elegance in the space.

Living Room Design by Pineapples, Palms, Etc. Design Team

These cute stools can be placed next to a sofa or occasional chair as a perfect spot to place a drink or magazine.  Under a console, they add a decorative element and you can easily slide them out to add a few extra seats to your living room.

stoolsPoufs are trending right now, and the Pineapple Girls love them.  They are soft and plush, and can be customized with a variety of fabrics.

Stools, poufs and ottomans can also be used in the bathroom…they are the perfect seating for a vanity.  We love these Lee Industries ottomans with nailhead trim.

Here are a few of our favorite pieces to add extra seating to your home…
